In Earl Howe’s written answer of 06 January 2015 (HL Deb, c173W) it was specified that the 10 applications were for grants and fellowships. Although fellowships are not mentioned in this question, we are including them in the response so that the numbers align.

Of the 10 applications for grants and fellowships relating to mesothelioma that were received by the MRC between 2009/10 and 2013/14:

- Five were fellowships of which were three were funded. All of the fellowship applications were for Clinical Research Training Fellowships;- Five were grants, of which:One was a Centre Grant (funded)Two were New Investigator Research Grants (unfunded)Two were Research Grants (unfunded)
